[(of Mira Staudinger, 1887)]
Fletcher & Nye (1982) stated:-
Mirina was established as the objective replacement name for Mira Staudinger, 1887.
The systematic position of Mirina is uncertain. It was established in the Saturniidae; its affinities and the possibility of placing it in a separate family were discussed by Seitz, 1911, in Seitz, Gross-Schmett. Erde 2: 193, who placed it tentatively in the Endromidae; it was placed in the BMNH collection in the Bombycidae by Hampson, whose placing has been followed in this catalogue. The larva was described by Staudinger, 1887, ibidem 3: 212, and by Graeser, 1888, Berl. ent. Z. 32: 134, who included an account of its defensive behaviour.
Mirina Staudinger, 1892 is the type-genus of the Bombycidae, Mirininae, which was raised to the Mirinidae by Minet, 1986, Alexanor 14 (7) : 303.
MIRINA was included within the family MIRINIDAE by Lemaire & Minet, in Kristensen (1999).
